I used this Hahnemühle watercolor sketchbook from 2019 to 2022, mainly as a travel sketchbook for urban sketching, seascapes, and landscapes. Places featured in this sketchbook include: Malta, Chicago, Bled, Bohinj, Rastoke, Zagreb, as well as my current hometown Rijeka and former hometown Njivice.
There's also some doodles, technique tests and experiments.
Scans of some of the pages from this sketchbook are in my gallery.

Here are a few other sketchbook tour videos with landscapes, urban sketches and nature subjects:
Being a mixed media artist, in my 15 years of sketching on the go I discovered that just one sketching kit doesn't fulfill all my creative needs. That's why I've developed not one, not two, not three, but five different sketching kits for every occasion, and I share them in this video:
In other news, I updated my sketchbooks comparison review post again with some new sketchbooks, and the table is now color-coded. I have some new interesting sketchbooks on my table at the moment, and when I get a chance to test them thoroughly, I'll add them to the post.
I completed one of my sketchbooks that I started back in 2012 and recorded a video of me flipping through the sketchbook and talking about what I did, what art tools I used, what I was learning etc. I used it mainly for quick watercolor cityscapes, city vignettes, seascapes, doodles, and some mixed media experiments.
I've found a few scans that I never published here, so I'm doing that today.
This is a stone arch by the coffee shop in Kostrena, where I often go for a walk. Brush pen and watercolor sketch. I cropped the right page because it's mostly empty.
This is the bridge that connects my home island Krk with the land, viewed from the Kostrena beach.
The last one was from a few days ago when I spent a couple of days hanging out on the beach in my hometown. I also have an instagram shot of the page spread where my boyfriend sketched some geometric patterns on the other page:
